    1415667480

    1415649420

    Formula One got the drawn out Driver's Championship it wanted, which won't be decided until the last race in Abu Dhabi, and it didn't even need double points to do it.

    1415236800

    Gymkhana king Ken Block has had a pretty simple car history in his trademark videos, starting out with Subaru Impreza rally cars before moving into Ford Focus racers for the past four installments.

    SEMA: Toyota Camry Dragster takes the phrase 'sleeper' to its logical extreme [w/video]
    1415224680

    Sometimes, looks can be deceiving. This is certainly one of those times, as Toyota successfully trolled the entirety of the media corps at the 2014 SEMA Show by rolling an innocent-looking Camry onto the floor... only to lift literally the entirety of its body to reveal an 850-horsepower, ...

    Video: Jet-powered Peel Trident is absurdly awesome, still slow
    1415123940

    With all of four horsepower from a 49cc engine, the Peel Trident was never going to be a fast car, even if it was sportier than the company's preceding P50. But one microcar enthusiast has apparently set out to fix this shortcoming by building a jet-powered version of the mid-60s microcar with ...

    Video: Kawasaki Ninja H2 and H2R speed through Jay Leno's Garage
    1415120340

    Jay Leno might be best known as a serious car enthusiast, but the comedian is an equal opportunity type, showing the love for both four and two-wheeled conveyances. That means when a groundbreaking motorcycle like the Kawasaki H2 comes along, it needs to make an appearance on Jay Leno's ...

    Motorsports: Race Recap: 2014 US Grand Prix goes the English way yet again
    1415027700

    Thankfully, the weekend's Formula One dramas all concerned events that happened off the track, with both Caterham and Marussia going into administration, after which a rumored boycott by the small teams was avoided.

    Official: Radical launches new 440-hp SR8 RSX track car
    1415022420

    Radical has made a name for itself building Le Mans Prototype-style sports cars you can actually buy and, in theory at least, drive on the road, but the resulting cars are so extreme that we doubt many of their owners actually do. Nominally street-legal (in some places) though they may be, these ...

    1414796460

    The Nürburgring is among the greatest racetracks of the world, with decades of fantastic motorsports history born on the snaking course. However, it seems that running the place as a business is about as difficult as learning the 12.9 miles of corners on the Nordschleife. After a long ...

    1413919680

    On the surface, it's easy to write off monster trucks as big, dumb and dangerous vehicles, but when you start looking deeper, they get a lot more impressive.

    Video: Video proof that LaFerrari has a pure electric mode
    1413845940

    Typically, a hybrid car, with its gas engine and an electric motor/battery pack is able to run on both forms of propulsion independently of each other. That means you can sip gas, run on pure electricity or some variation there of. The Ferrari LaFerrari is not like other hybrids. See, the ...
